I remembered this morning that my daughter has mentioned in the past how much she likes the advent calendar I pull out every year. While I was thinking about it, I got an email with a 25% coupon for a store that would have one she likes. So I went searching and found it. Without the coupon, it would be a no-go. Too expensive. As I was pondering what to do, another email arrived from the same store with another coupon - this one for free shipping today only. That did it. Clearly, this was meant to be. I ordered it (using the debit card, not credit), saved $20 in the process, and marked her gift off my list.
Feeling good about things, I decided to post here and found that this post is #100! Wow. Another sense of accomplishment.
This day is off to a good start.
